We also plan to introduce music and dance courses based on Gandharva Veda music in future. ‘Shanti Tatav’ played an important role in human life. All daily disputes are due to lack of this ‘Shanti Tatva’. If we get peace in life then we will be stress free and healthy. It an honour of Maharishi family that Maharishi Ji has introduced the Transcendental Meditation technique for inner peace and wellness in a very simple way. Now there is no need to go to the Himalayas to find peace. One can enjoy blissful life and inner peace by just a few minutes of Transcendental Meditation and listening to chanting Gandharva Veda music. This year we will have a special focus on 'Gandharva Veda'. This year theme is "Establishment of World Peace through Mahrishi Gandharv Veda Music", Girish Ji added.
